September photo: milky way in Extremadura


Summer moonless nights are a good opportunity to photograph the milky way. To do this, it is convenient to go somewhere with little light pollution and with little air traffic.

This year we went to Cáceres, Extremadura, looking for clear skies, low pollution and some object for the foreground. We found an old building that we could use by lighting it slightly during the exposition. Unfortunately, the contamination of the nearby towns was very evident because we did not have anti-pollution filters for this lens.
